Niki de Saint Phalle @ Omer Tiroche
17 June 2016 - 10 September 2016
Je Suis Une Vache Suisse, curated by Dr. Helen Pheby of Yorkshire Sculpture Park, brings together many works by Niki de Saint Phalle that have not previously been seen in a public exhibition. The playful title of this exhibition is borrowed from Saint Phalle’s sculpture of 1991 and is the point of departure for a significant display of work that gives serious insight into the work of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Studying the over-arching narrative that stems from the raw angry nature of Saint Phalle’s early works to the reconciled later works in which she explores and celebrates being a woman in control of her own career, body and life, this important exhibition looks at the changes in her oeuvre.
